various religions, religions of the united states of america. we heard, of course, from the president of the united states, and he vowed after the senseless murders in arizona, in colorado, in wisconsin, and now here in connecticut, he vowed that he would do whatever his office would allow him to do, whatever powers he now has, to try to make sure this does not happen again. and he will work diligently in that area. anderson cooper, we watched these faiths, they were well representative. we can only hope and pray that those who now mourn will get at least a little bit of comfort from what we just saw. >> and the president toward the end of his remarks asking if we are, all of us as a society, doing all we can to protect our children. he said he felt we are not and he said we can do better. very powerful words from president obama ending this ceremony, and now people in the audience greeting one another, hugging one another. first responders are still inside. wolf, very moving moment when the first responders came into the room shortly before the service began, there was a standing ova

[ applause ] [ applause ] >> on behalf of the newtown clergy association, we are so grateful to our president for spending time with us and for reminding us that we are not alone in this time of tragedy, that there's not just a country standing behind us, that there's a world standing behind us. those words i know as difficult as they were to hear for some, brought much consolation to all. i want to thank our governor and all the state officials who have been by our side since day one. they have been a remarkable reminder to us of their humanity and their care for us. but most of all, i want to thank an incredible first-select woman who's led us through the most dark periods of our lives. in the storms of the past years ravaged our community without power for days, i thought those were the hardest days of pat's life, but when i saw her friday in front of sandy hook school, i realized that she'd met the most dark days. pat, to you, to dr. robinson, we thank you for being leaders to us through these difficult times. and now this final part of our prayer is for u
works. there are examples around the work. even in america with lax weak gun protections there are in fact some regulations in some places and they make a difference. let's treat gun violence like any public health crisis which i would say losing 30,000 lives a year would qualify as a crisis. we need to treat it like the threat to public health and families that it is, treat a gun like any other consumer product. this is how we slash the death rate. enforcement and education. for guns it starts when congress stops being intimidated by the extremists and then just do what the majority of gun owners agree we should do. we new the assault weapon ban which maybe we'll introduce under the leadership of our dear friend and colleague, care lynn mccarthy. close the gun show loophole. for starters, things that n.r.a. members agree with. let's care as much about real guns as we do about toy gun consumer protection. to start us down the road of making our children safer by treating children's gun safety like their auto safety. all the air bags, anti-drunk driving campaigns, child se

cliff today, but gun violence is another area in america where it seems we can't have a discussion without delusional claims of overreach and taking away hunting rifles. congress won't even allow statistics on gun violence to be gathered, and we certainly have made no progress towards closing the gun show loophole. i come to the floor with a small array of hope. with nearly half of all military sue sides are committed with privately owned weapons, the pentagon and congress are moving towards establishing policies to separate at-risk service members from personal private weapons. congress is poised to enact legislation to end a prohibition about the military collecting information about firearms kept at home. these are simple commonsense steps for an armed services where more military personnel take their own life than who die in battle. perhaps if we can take these reasonable steps to protect our servicemen and their families, perhaps we can have the courage to treat the epidemic of gun violence with the same thoughtful small steps when it comes to protecting the rest of our famili

of the united states of america and our allies and i thank my friend for yielding me the 15 seconds. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman yields back. the gentleman from massachusetts. mr. mcgovern: i yield 1 1/2 minutes to the gentleman from pennsylvania, mr. altmire. mr. altmire: mr. speaker, as we begin debate on this act, it's critical we understand just how important it is to our troops and to our country that we pass this legislation with a bipartisan vote. it's easy to get bogged down in partisanship on most issues, but this cannot be one of them. this legislation provides the men and women of our armed forces the necessary equipment and financial support to effectively carry out their duties while at the same time protecting all of our national security. our troops have proven time and again that they are the most skilled forces in the world but we must provide them with the necessary support to help them serve and protect our country. congress has an obligation to support the men and women who serve in the armed forces and who sacrifice so much for us every day. our country owes them

where the real purpose is to gain information about someone right here in america. that can happen without a warrant, and we should not let that happen without a warrant. our national security is not threatened if we require this information to be tagged and sequestered and subject to judicial review. it would merely ensure that the information intercepted overseas in the form of communications to or from an american citizen would have to be overseen by the courts. current law is supposed to prohibit this practice, but there really is no way to enforce the prohibition. that leaves the door open for abuse, and that is simply unacceptable. unfortunately, neither senator wyden nor i are able to offer our amendments that would address this hole in our privacy rights. we can do better. and we can also do better when it comes to transparency. the simplest amendment that the senate can approve today is the one that i am proud to cosponsor. it is the wyden amendment to require the director of national intelligence to report to congress on the impact of fisa amendments on the privacy of ame
disappeared from the united states, and we conquered smallpox in the americas in 1971 and worldwide in 1977, sort of lent us confidence that really, there wasn't much that we couldn't do. as a result, the center began to diversify, to broaden its focus. and so we expanded into chronic disease areas. the national institute for occupational safety and health was incorporated into cdc in the early 1970s. much more recently, we've gotten into areas surrounding injury control and prevention. and of course we realized in the last few years that the infectious disease agenda is not over. certainly it's not in the developing world where it still causes a very heavy burden. apart from what aids is doing as probably the most egregious example that we've seen in our lifetimes, having surpassed malaria as the largest killer of people in africa, is tuberculosis, for which we've had good drugs, haven't used them wisely or enough in years past to reduce some of the problems that we're seeing today. and that's getting more and more serious now with multiply resistant strains of tuberculosis. tuberculosis i
? >> well, let's start out with the facts. no worker in america is forced to join a union. the national labor re-elections act say that any worker -- our uaw constitution says any worker who does not want to be a member does not have to be. they still work. the question here really is do citizens in a community pay their fair share of the police, the fire, the snow removal, any of the services they get from that community? yes, they do. i want to ask governor snyder, is he -- >> no, no. no. bob, let me ask you the question. i know you had fun with me on that one. in other words, you have to pay the equivalent of the dues even if you're not a member of the union, right? you're forced to do it in order to work. >> you don't have to be a member of the union. so it's not about freedom to be in the union or not. you don't have to be a member of the union. >> why should you be forced to pay the equivalent of union dues in order to work? >> you're responsible to pay your fair share of the cost of representation. if two workers are on the line, they both get the benefit of the contract, they ge
